With the beautiful butterfly as its symbol and super-star anti-ageing ingredient Prickly Pear oil at the heart of all of its products, Lunalis is a sustainable, woman-owned skincare brand that has a lot of heart. The brand’s female founders have Moroccan heritage, while products are manufactured in the USA. The precious oil is extracted from the seeds using a unique cold-pressed process -so that the highly beneficial antioxidants, minerals and nutrients can be used. The Prickly Pear oil the company uses is purported to have a remarkably powerful and transformative effect on the skin, reducing dark circles, smoothing lines, reducing pores and making the complexion glow.
The company is about much more than just formulating natural, effective products though, as they’re also deeply committed to the concept of ethical sourcing and fair trade – and they put this into action. Lunalis ensures it pays a fair wage to the Moroccan women who harvest the prickly pear it ethically sources and uses only organically farmed, cruelty-free, vegan, natural ingredients in all of its formulations.
Lunalis products are all fragrance free and non-toxic – including standout products such as the Extreme Face Oil, with 24K gold flakes, which can be used as a nourishing oil, primer, or a stunning highlighter. This company places a strong importance on female empowerment and says it aims to uplift and improve the lives of women all over the world through its woman-powered farms. Right now it’s starting in Morocco – but eventually it says , it aims to create organic female farming initiatives all around the globe.
We think that contributing to female empowerment, job sustainability, fair trade production, organic farming and ethical sourcing are five stellar reasons to support any brand – so when it comes to our assessment of their ethical values, Lunalis definitely gets an A from us!
